    Did L5.11 fix your issues introduced with L5.10?

    If L5.11 did not fix your playback experience, what are the issues you are still experiencing? Please be specific and detail as possible. Use the Templete in the L5.10 thread to provide details here.

    For people having audio issues
    If you are seeing some audio problems, please report how you are getting your audio, what channels you are seeing them on, and what program/programs do you see it on. This way possible we can rule out L5.11 as a contributor or narrow that issue down.

    My only known problems were with DVR of the HD Local CBS station through DISH. All recordings would freeze, and I the live were backed up it would freeze and skip forward. This has been totally fixed.

    Thanks Dish engineers

    Did L5.11 fix your issues introduced with L5.10? Yes, the video no longer breaks up. However...

    If L5.11 did not fix your playback experience, what are the issues you are still experiencing? While the video now plays back smooth, with no 2-3 second jumps, the audio has short drop outs. I hear a pop and the audio is gone for half a second to as long as 2 seconds. This happened every 10 - 30 seconds, and only on delayed or previously recorded content (not live tv). I only had time to test this very briefly, and only on the channel I was previously having problems on, so I'll update this again later.

    I am still having audio dropouts on my local ABC affiliate (KXTV). But I am no longer having the garbled video that I was getting on some of the other local HD channels.

    I think all of the problems introduced with L5.10 have been fixed. I tried new recordings and they worked, and recordings that were made previously that wouldn't play back properly, look fine now. If I find any problems during further testing and use, I'll report my findings.

    What is the type of audio connection that you are using and was it DD5 content you were watching?

    Yes and no - I have since had 5 spontaneous reboots, missed 7 recordings (since this morning) and get worse OTA reception. Cannot use the "Pointing Dish" Menu. I get a continuous low hum, but not reading on any Satellite, or Transponder.

    All in all a step sideways - but my 4 Local HD signals are working

    klaatu,

    Have you did a power cord reset? Rob is in your area.. Not sure if he got L5.11 but perhaps he will pipe in.

    I have done 3 resets manually, due to a hung (BLACK SCREEN WITH audio). 2 pushing the power button for 5 seconds, and the third was a power cord pull.

    Did L5.11 fix your issues introduced with L5.10? Yes. I have checked previously made recordings and some from today. I am not seeing the quick skips forward that I had noticed, so I would say my issue is fixed.

    For people having audio issues: No audio issues here.

    Did L5.11 fix your issues? It sure seems to have fixed them. I've watched a recording from today, an older recording, and I paused a live show for a few minutes, then watched it and I've had no issues at all.

    The audio problems appear to only happen on delayed Sat delivered local HD channels - recorded and live seem ok. I didn't notice any problems with the national HD channels.
    I am getting my audio using an optical cable.
    I've never had any audio problems before 5.11 - although I might have had problems with 5.10, but just not noticed it because of the video problem.

    I am running my sound via optical cable through my surround receiver. I believe the feed I was receiving at the time was DD2.0, not 5, as the program was not being broadcast in HD.
